Subsea Technology and Rentals (STR) has ordered a second Nexus 2 USBL system from Applied Acoustics Engineering after having ordered the first unit at this year’s Ocean Business.
Nexus 2 is the second generation 2- way digital system designed and produced by the UK headquartered company.
The system provides 16 target tracking as well as new software features and survey tools such as the common interrogate frequency (CIF) and geo-referenced graphical overlay.
“We’re thrilled that STR has opted to add two of our new Nexus 2 systems to its equipment pool,” said AAE’s sales manager, Gavin Willoughby, “so having these available to the worldwide rental market through STR is a great endorsement of the product and an important facet of our company strategy.”
Scott Johnstone, managing director at STR, stated: “As providers of specialist marine equipment and supporters of Applied Acoustics’ products we had no hesitation in purchasing two Nexus 2 systems to support our customers’ operations worldwide. STR are keen to develop alliances with well-established manufacturers and these latest acquisitions will be a welcome addition to our growing inventory of high quality subsea equipment.”
